    We've had this problem with 2 1997 MPV's and it is quite frustrating. Around the same time the fuel gauge quit working the Check Engine light also came on.

Sounds like your altonator belt is loose and needs tightened. if you put a new belt on with the altonator it just needs re adjusted..

Vehicle starts runs than quits. It won't turn over after that until it sits for a while


Bet it's been running with the check engine light on for awhile. Scan the car for the reason the check engine light is on. Coolant senser saying it's colder thatn it really is and an oxagen senser grounded will both do this. No oil in the engine or water in the oil will do it too.

Check transmmision fuild


locate the transmission dipstick on the right or left side of the engine, toward the rear of the engine. it is similar to the oil dipstick, which is probably marked "engine oil" anyway. make sure the engine is hot and running. take the dipstick out and wipe it clean. notice the hash marks and writing inscribed on the stick. the level should be between the hash mark area for the "hot" marks. if it is low, but visible on the stick, add a 1/2 pint to a pint at a time. DON'T OVERFILL. use the correct trans fluid. probably MERCON V, the trans fluid type might be marked on the stick. it's also in the owners manual.

if you have a manual trans, you'll have to get under the vehicle and remove the fill plug located on the left side upper part of the trans. it has a fairly large head and should be easy to spot. use your finger to check the level. it should be 1/2 inch from the top of the hole.

Ck engine light on - no code


Check engine light with no codes usually means a PCM reset is happening. EBP shorting, ICP shorting, aftermarket "performance chip". PIDS need to be monitored to eliminate sensors. IDMs (Injector Driver Modules) can also cause this. IDM's are separate from the PCM/ECM (engine computer).

What transmission fluid should is use for a Madza Lantis 1996


Go to any auto parts store you feel comfortable with and they will know the proper fluid!
If your trans isn't working 100% you may want to add Lucas Trans also!

Transmission fliud


To check the trans fluid you have to have car on a lift or over a pit (like at oil change place) so it is level.

On the lower pass. side of trans. right near the rt. front drive axle there is a small plug (takes 7/16" wrench) Pull plug and fuild should run out W/ engine hot and running.

If you need to add there is a red cap on the driver side top of the trans right at the back of the engine. Unscrew cap and fill thru small hole.
